    Jihan was hired as a "day of coordinator" and she earned and exceeded those 5 stars! She was knowledgeable, professional, kind, and very organized. Our daughter's wedding was everything we hoped it would be, thanks to Jihan. I highly recommend her!

    “Amani Affairs leaves no stone unturned!”

    Amani Affairs provided impeccable service for our wedding. They supported us from start to finish including: Engagement party planning, broad consultant services throughout the planning process, wedding vendor coordination and day-of coordination.

    The company founder, Jihan, was a true God send! She provided great tools to navigate through tough portions during our planning process e.g. vendor selection, floral designs, finalizing the day of schedule etc. and she shared her wealth of experience to help us prioritize what was truly important to us.

    Additionally, when things got hectic, everyone on the Amani Affairs team struck a perfect balance between listening as a neutral party and reminding us to focus us on the true purpose for the festivities...our union!

    On the day of, the Amani Affairs team made sure that everything operated on time and went off without a hitch! I'm positive that our wedding would not have been as memorable, stress free and utterly amazing without the professionalism, guidance and support of their team.

    I wholeheartedly recommend Jihan and the entire Amani Affairs team if you want your wedding activities to be executed so perfectly that you and your guests will talk about it for months!

    Amani Affairs provided superb support on my wedding day and kept the day running smoothly. There was potential for flubs in seating and a possibility of interruptions to the ceremony due to the size of our wedding and that everything was timed to an almanac's prediction of the sunset but Jihan made sure that it worked. There were a lot of balls to juggle: demanding guests, outdoor ceremony seating before the sun set, plus 'guarding the dress' during outdoor photographer work (again, working fast before the sun set). She rendered photog support all while simultaneously making sure that the outdoor strings and pre-reception appetizers were served accordingly. There were little fires that she put out that I (as the bride) didn't even know about until I returned from the honeymoon. Amani Affairs is on speed dial for my next event.
